HAVE TOO MANY
STUDIES HE SAYS
Prcf. Davidson, of Onnha, Criticises
the School System.
Prof. W. M. Davidson, superin
tendent of the Omaha public- schools.
in an address before the Mercantile
Club in Kansas City, Kansas, last
Monday night, said that ''the course
of study in our American school sys
tem has become topheavy."
In explaining the present status of
the American system of education,
Prof. Davidson told of the enlarge
ment of the college and university
curriculum from a few branches of
study of a century ago to the vast
schools of 120 studies of today. He
said the high schools in the cities are
modern institutions in which thirty
or forty branches are taught, while
the elementary schools have been as
marvelous in the development as the
college, the university or the high
"Yet," he declared, we are at
tempting to do too much, not real
izing the limitations of children's
minds. Our teaching is at the high
est point of intensive efficiency, and
the high school graduate of today
knows more that is of practical ben
efit than the Yale or Harvard grad
uate of fifty years ago. But the crv
now is for the limitation of the non
essential from the course of study
and the simplification of that which
remains, that which fits men and
women for the practical life."
The School System on Trial.
Prof. Davidson said the school sys
tem was on trial as it never had been
I before, though he had not yet found
lone of the writers of magazine ar
ticles criticising the schools who
knew what he was writing about.

ers who are asking what they are
Manual training, he insisted, is
just as essential to education as
mathematics, English, Latin, or Greek.
He could see in the vocational train
ing of the schools of the future
higher efficiency that would count
for much in the solution of the in
dustrial situation in America.
Train the Hand and Head Together.
"I look with alarm on the segre
gation of our high schools. The plane-
shovers and the Latin student should
grow up si.le by side. That is what
I makes broader citizenship."

Hi her 12
All students are back in school af
ter their three days'' vacation, work
ing as faithfully as though there had
been no interruption in their work.
The teachers are working with re
newed vigor and seem to have prof
ited by their enforced vacation.
The members of the debating
squad are hard at work under the
direction of Miss Coon preparing for
their debates with other schools. The
team has not yet been selected.
Those who represent the team will
have to earn their places. AulAirn
and Weeping Water will both de
bate with us in our own city.
All patrons of the school and all
persons interested in the welfare of
the school are asked to help the Col
umbian school in the piano contest
by seeing that all coupons are turned
into the school. At present an in
dividual has more coupons than we
have and in many cases coupons
from the city have been given to
him. Let us have some local pride
and stand up for the schools. Save
your coupons for us.
We hope in the near future to
have Dr. Condra spend a Saturday
with us and conduct a field geog
raphy expedition to places of interest
near the city for the benefit of the
physical geography classes in the
high school and such teachers as care
to avail themselves of it. This will
be of great value to the students as
Dr. Condra is recognized as one of
the leading men in the west, so far
as practical geography is concerned.
Beaver City, an enterprising city

MRS. LATKY WSLL
fGT BE COYNED
She is After Ker Successful Oppon
ent fcr Grand Chief of Honor.
.Mrs. Mary A. Latky, who was de
feated for re-election as Grand Chief
of Honor of the Degree of Honor, re
fuses to stay defeated, and yesterday
she filed a suit to oust her successful
competitor, Mrs. Mayme Cleaver of
Neligh, from the office. The petition
was tiled at Lincoln while Mrs.
Cleaver was in that city and service
of summons could be had upon
her. Mrs. Latky's petition alleges
that .Mrs. Cleaver was elected by one
vote and that at least one vote cast
on the ballot on which the election
oc curred was illegal, as Dr. Mosshart,
who voted on the ballot and who is
medical examiner of the order, was
disqualified to vote under the rules.
Mrs. Latky makes the further claim
that under the rules she holds over
until her successor is elected and
qualified niul this, she claims, has
not yet taken place.
It will be recalled that .Mrs. Latky
was defeated after a bitter flight at
the last (3 rand Lodge. She had pre
viously started a hot fight on Miss
Teresa Hempel, of this city, for re
election as Grand Recorder and the
two fights became crossed with the
result Miss Hem pel was elected by
a large majority while Mrs. l,atky
was eseieateit. one tactor wincii en
tered largely into the contest was
a suit begun by the proprietors of
the Royal hotel at Lincoln against
Mrs. Latky to collect an alleged board
bill due tliem. 1 ins case had a great
deal to do with Mrs. Latky's defeat.
it being used in the campaign against
her with telling effect.
Mrs. Latky's friends assert that
her suit to oust Mrs. Cleaver is only
the commencement of the suit bus
iness and that there will be other
highly entertaining cases filed. The
effec t of this is likely to be hard upon
the order and upon this account her
action is greatly regretted.

Deduc tion of Debts From . Credits
Valid, Says Supreme Court.
The revenue law of Nebrasks,
which permits, under the interpreta
tion of the supreme court, a tax
payer to deduct his bona fide debts
from his gross credits, is not un
constitutional or in conflict with sec
tion 1, article ix, of the constitution.
This is the holding of the supreme
court on a motion for a rehearing in
the case of the Scandinavian Mutual
Aid association against Kearney
county, the latter being defendant
Because the present revenue law
provided for the assessment of net
credits rather than gross credits, the
defendant alleged that it is uncon
stitutional, the constitution provid
ing for a tax by valuation so that
every person shall pay a tax in pro
portion to the value of his property,
the value to be ascertained in such
manner as the legislature shall di
rect. The defendant urged that al
lowing debts to be released from as
sessment and taxation and would re
sult in levying taxes unequal upon
the taxable property in the state.
Such a construction of the consti
tution was never contemplated by its
framers, says the court. If the tax
payers are not allowed to offset
bona fide debts from gross credits, it
would result in compelling him to
pay taxes in some instances many
times the value of the net work of
the taxpayer. It would result in
requiring every bank to pay taxes
upon several times the value of its
capital stock and would practically
result in bankrupting many of the
financial and manufacturing insti
tutions of the state

the leaders of the republican party,

realize that such a move would mean
the death of the republican party for

Be as careful as you can you will oc

get a medicine of known reliability, one
that has an established reputation and
that is certain to effect a quick cure.
Such a medicine is Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It has gained a world wide
reputation by its remarkable cures of
this most common ailment, and can
always be depended upon. It acts on
nature's plan, relieves the lungs, aids
expectoration, opens the secretions and
aids nature in restoring the system to
a healthy condition. During the many
years in which it has beenj in general
use we have yet to learn of a single
case of cold or attack of the grip hav
ing resulted in pneumonia when this
remedy was used, which shows conclu
sively that it is a certain preventive of
that dangerous disease. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy contains no opium or
other narcotic and may be given as con
fidently to a baby as to an adult. For
